My initial response was based on your assertion that the reviews are done on paper. Certainly a Documentum-type review regime is much cleaner. Everything gets routed automatically as PDFs, with all review comments captured electronically and collated for the author. It's definitely cleaner. Now all you have to do is convince your reviewers to learn a new tool, convince the company to pay for the new tool (Acrobat for everyone), and get everyone to play nicely together. Good luck!

Thank you for the responses regarding ISO9001/QA procedures.

I take on board the reasoning behind the paper trails - but the idea of
having reams of paper to store in the office fills me with horror. Has
anyone tried to implement a QA procedure where everything is reviewed
electronically? Are there any pitfalls for this procedure? Are there any
advantages to be gained?

I would welcome any comments/thoughts/experience.
